Vox Media contributors thrive on innovation and change while ambitiously seeking to master their subject areas, hone their craft, and improve their communities. We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of brands includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, Racked and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month.

Vox Media's SB Nation is the fastest-growing online sports media brand and the largest network of more than 300 individual fan-centric sports communities, including SBNation.com, our national flagship property. Our network is powered by the most respected web-native sports journalists. One part of our network needs some new voices, and that's where you come in. 

The Ice Garden, the SB Nation blog covering women's hockey, is hiring writers. The writers will be responsible for writing posts about women's hockey on agreed-upon topics and schedules. We have openings for multiple contributors. We're looking for one contributor based in the Midwest who could cover WCHA hockey, and one NWHL writer. If you're interested in either of these angles, please specify in your cover letter. 

Our best candidates will: 

  • Have a passion for women's hockey and will already be familiar with The Ice Garden.
  • Be able to produce and edit clean copy. 
  • Be comfortable working in a remote environment. 
  • Have a skill set, availability, and experience that lines up with the specific role you're applying to fill. 
  • Aptitude for Q&As and interviewing. 
  • Previous hockey writing experience is preferred. 

These are remote contractor positions that are compensated with a monthly stipend. Some daytime availability is preferred. To apply, submit a resume detailing any relevant sportswriting experience, a cover letter explaining why you're the best candidate for that opportunity, and a hockey-related writing sample that showcases your strengths. You must submit all three items to be considered for this role. 

Vox Media is committed to building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. If your experience and qualifications do not exactly align with what we're looking for, but you believe you can thrive in this role, we encourage you to apply. Vox Media is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, disability, national origin, protected veteran status, age, or any other status protected by applicable national, federal, state, or local law.
